Flaming Kiwi was a good find. I’ve stayed many places in Queenstown and am glad to have found this one. We had a private sleepout cabin with bunks. It was just opposite the door to the lower lounge and kitchen with toilets and showers handy....More

Best hostel I have seen in new zealand. Welcoming and reasonable. Clean and convienent. Fun people to talk too. I was in NZ backpacking and it was perfect for meeting people, cooking my own food, and doing activities around QT.

We got in late, around 9:30pm but there was somebody here to show us around, which is super nice as most times there's just a note left for you. The place is very clean considering the amount of ppl that come and go.

Thank Kanaena
